      Richard and I were colleagues in the Department of Justice, and, later, we worked together closely while Partners in private practice. In between those times, we represented adverse parties in contentious litigation. Knowing Richard as a colleague, adversary and friend -- I have the highest regard for him and strongly recommend him!
